    If i stream music from my laptop to a wireless thingy which is then connected to my amp does the sound card in the laptop have any influence on the quality at all...or does it not come into the equation???

    Although some friendly tech-head on the forums may correct me I'm pretty sure the answer is no. The chip on the sound card (and therfore the quality) is only used when you are encoding during recording to your hdd or if you are outputting through the soundcard - i.e. to your speakers.

    If your music files are already encoded .aiff .wav cdma etc then they are just like any other data file - just 0's and 1's. When your receiver requests the file your laptop will serve the data file via your network connection and not go anywhere near the soundcard. As long as your wireless link is stable you'll be ok.
